Joyce, 35, will be looking to extend his undefeated record to 13 fights but faces stern competition from Takam, who once competed against two-time unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.
In his last bout, Joyce achieved his best victory of his career, stunning Daniel Dubois with a 10th round KO.
Takam, now aged 40, last stepped into the ring in July 2020, beating Jerry Forest by unanimous decision.
The two veterans are set to put on an explosive show when they meet next month and the winner could potentially set up a fight with the winner of Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk, who fight in September.
